Do not recommend working at this lab
MLT (Former Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – March 18, 2019
Working at a reference laboratory can be terrible, quite the opposite from working at Westbrook, from what I gather at least. Management is awful, there is no truth or trust, they flat out lie to your face about everything. Opportunities for advancement are misleading, favorites are played heavily... very discriminatory, there are clearly visible double standards. If you can keep your head down and don’t care about advancing or how you are treated, you can have some longevity here, otherwise you will be miserable within a year. The lab has an abysmal turnover rate, they lose about 3-4 people per quarter, sometimes in a month. The majority of the staff, about 90% of them, have been there for less than two years. Unfortunately I don’t think corporate has a clue, and if they do, they don’t care or know how to handle the problem. Medical quality is a joke, which is upsetting. They care about numbers and quantity and push for sloppy work. Pay is decent for what it is and for the industry, but don’t expect it to be worth it in the end. I wish I listened to folks when I started who had been there a while and either left sooner or didn’t get any hopes up about anything.
Most of the employees at this lab are actively seeking employment elsewhere. Please do not waste your time here.
Pay isn’t bad - but even that isn’t enough to hold people
Everything other than pay.
